And in a related piece, Zachary Quinto 'officially' came out over the weekend

Frankly (for me, at least), I file this story under 'no surprise' (kind of sensed that he was; he dresses too nicely to be heterosexual :P ), but I admire the reason why he chose to 'go public' with his sexual orientation; as a sign of solidarity for a teenaged boy who committed suicide over relentless bullying. Personally, I think Quinto's Spock is one of the highlights of Nu Star Trek and I look forward to seeing him in another Star Trek movie (if it ever gets MADE!!).
Bravo, Zachary Quinto. :thumbsup: Classy... :nBSGsalute: :cylonclap:

Poor Kaylee can fix almost anything... except a misaligned gaydar. :P



No, I kid. :P :lol:
I think it's amazing how we live in an ever-evolving climate of ever-increasing tolerances (we've still a long way to go, but it's encouraging).
When I was a kid? If an actor admitted he/she was gay, it was usually career suicide. Rock Hudson only came out in 1984 when he was nearly dead and had nothing to lose anymore. But even more 'obvious' gay actors were simply labeled 'sophisticated'; or they were only cast as the 'zany uncle' type (Paul Lynde on "Bewitched" kind of roles) or whatever. Personally, I'm amazed at the progress I've seen even in my 45 year lifetime. If only my best friend from high school were alive to see all of this (he died of AIDS in 1991) , he wouldn't believe it... :)

A lot of gay young people born into this age hopefully won't have to see so much of the closeted, cruel bigotry that defined living a homosexual life for so many gay people born of my generation or earlier (for the record; I'm not gay, but I've many friends who are, and sadly, were). I think of the pre-Stonewall era being rather like the southern United States before the Civil Rights Act, where blacks had separate fountains and restrooms, and had to sit in the backs of buses. Prejudice against homosexuals is just another facet of the same kind of bigotry... :cylonnono:

I applaud Zachary Quinto (and Sean Maher); it's one thing to have people think you're gay, it's another to admit it openly, bravely and on your own terms. Good for them! I'm relieved that I'm still alive in an age where so many people are finally open about being gay with no fear of blackmail or reprisal. :cylonclap:

He was the only part of that movie I liked. Definitely a very talented actor.

Also liked him in the first season of HEROES, too. That started out as a kick-a$$ little show, but never recovered from it's sophomore slump (season 1 is the only season of that show I own on dvd). Quinto's Sylar was a great villain (sort of a Norman Bates meets X-Men kind of guy).
IMO, his Spock was right on the money too....
